SALFORD CITY RADCLIFFE BOROUGH
 

Star date: 16th January 2011

Salford City 1 Radcliffe Borough 2

REF HITS AMMIES PROSPECTS

Two shots at goal – one clearly offside and one an ultra soft penalty – allowed Radcliffe to sneak the points at Moor Lane, thanks to a feeble excuse for a referee, and an `assistant' who must have been one of the Borough players' dads running the line…

Full shocking story and photos here…

Was it the drizzling rain that obscured the linesman's brain in the first half, as a Radcliffe forward, three yards offside, ran down the wing and crossed for his equally offside strike partner to gleefully open the scoring? 

Up until that point and beyond, Salford City well looked the better side with Glyn Barker hitting the post after five minutes, low crosses flying across the Radcliffe goalmouth and only a last minute block stopping a goal bound Steve Foster shot. But any flow to Salford's game was interrupted constantly by a fussy referee stopping free kicks being taken quickly and pulling out his yellow cards at every opportunity.

The second half was only a few minutes old when Salford City equalised as a top cross from Steve Foster was met with a stooping Glyn Barker header that looped over the Radcliffe keeper, almost in slow motion. And that really was the sum total of on-target attempts on goal for both teams, although the Ammies dominated play and possession…

…Until, that is, a few minutes from time when a Radcliffe forward did a Berbatov and collapsed in a flying heap under a soft challenge in the box. The penalty was duly converted for Borough to complete an undeserved victory, to make it three narrow defeats in a row for Salford City.

Referees and linesmen – you just can't get the staff these days.
